Tipz Theme Released

We wanted a good strong theme that could fit a wide variety of topics for Tipz, which mainly writes how-to articles among various other topics. The front page has an easy to use ‘feature’ section so you can easily put on display your most in-depth posts. You can even slot in a nice picture and a post excerpt to accompany the headline by editing the feature-image custom field and setting the category to ‘Featured‘. We always like our rounded corners, which give the theme a simple Web 2.0 feel.

Tipz WordPress Theme

The theme is fully widgetized. A special feature of this theme as we use in many of our themes is the logo changer. You can use the default WordPress setting (‘blog name’) or you can use your own logo. Upload your logo in the root folder of Tipz theme and name it logo.png or you can use the logo.psd as a template. You will find the source in the root folder of the Tipz theme..

Update! – 02.12.2009

  • Gravatar problem fixed
  • Page Navigation problem fixed

Many ask about feature image usage. Click on this screenshot and you will see how can make that image appear on featured post. For the design quality try to use a standard 150px/150px image. See how!

    Is it possible to get the png files as a template? I want to change the colors of your design. I’m very proud about your work, very very good design. It would be a pleasure for me, if could change the colors.

    Thorsten, Please explain how to fix ‘˜parse error’. I don’t understand you above explain. Where to put “php.ini”. Many many thanks

  3. Frost says:

    awesome theme man. but seems every post i did always shows in the featured section.

    how do i show that the “Featured” only category shows in the featured section?

    thanks in advance

    Absolutely great artwork, simply unique and so cool as well. Brilliant work.

  5. 1. Add a custom field for the featured post by editing your featured post
    2. Use ‘feature-image’ as name for the custom field
    3. Insert a full image tag for the value who refers to the 150px thumbnail image

    it’s work for me

  6. Osobase says:

    For all those have the ‘˜parse error’, do not change your php.ini file. Otherwise, you may end up with more problems than you already have. To solve this problem, you would need to make some changes in the header.php file. In two instances, the short tag <? is used instead of the full tag <?php . That's where the problem is from. So replace the short tag <? with <?php in the two instances and you would be fine.

    Admin could also make this change in the theme so that those who use xampp on Windows will stop having this problem.

    Why there’s no reply button on comment form? pls anyone help?


  9. Hi! I’m using two of yours themes on my blogs (Without noticed it before today).
    I’m trying to tweak it a bit to customize to my need and I think it will be a great idea to provide a forum on your website about yours templates.

    Well, thank again to give them free

  10. Mark says:

    Child pages don’t show up anywhere. Shouldn’t they be visible in a menu somewhere?

    Otherwise, great looking theme. Thanks.

  11. Hi, to fix the header.php parse error issue just open that header.php file, at line 9 there is something that reads ‘title=”RSS .92″ href=”<?', just change it to 'title="RSS .92" href="<?php'
    Just like Osobase said

  12. Very nice interface design, respect & well done job!

  13. axa says:

    but..your theme (designdisease.com) is very good..ilke it..

  14. Sagive says:

    is there any way to pick a specific post
    that would constantly display as the “featured” post ?

    You should add a “subscribe to comments” :)
    to your website.. makes life a lot easier..

  15. Trying to get the same effect as the last comment… want one specific post to always be in the ‘featured’ window. Trying to figure out an easy hack for this?


  16. HELP!!..

    I know you made this for free but after days of attempts
    i need just a little bit of help….please

    how can i disply specific pages?? this is the header code:
    <?php $pages = wp_list_pages('sort_column=menu_order&title_li=&echo=0');
    $pages = preg_replace('%]+)>%U’,’‘, $pages);
    $pages = str_replace(‘
    ‘,’‘, $pages);
    echo $pages; ?>

    what need i change ?

  17. DastanC says:

    The Solve about header.php 56th line parse error. It’s not about this line. Please check the line 4 and you’ll see the twice. just change it with this “”

    and then it works
